Grain Exports Falling

Russia will cut grain exports by almost 67 percent to 1 million tons in May, compared with 2.88 million tons in April, Interfax reported Wednesday, citing Arkady Zlochevsky, president of the Russian Grain Union.

Between May 1 and 16 of this year, Russia exported 473,000 tons of grain, including 358,000 tons of wheat, 50,000 of barley and 30,000 of corn, Zlochevsky said.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
